Follow Up Friday - Rob Peter to Pay Paul!

Updated: Feb 13, 2019

My ONE Thing that I wanted to achieve this week was to organize my pantry. I thought it seemed like a reasonable goal to achieve. But I realized when I looked at my weekly calendar, there was only one window of time to do it if I wanted to achieve it before my Follow-Up Friday post. With that accountability in mind, I had to get it done in that one time window. Still, I got side-tracked on another project and started the pantry later than I planned. And it took longer than I thought it would. So I was working into the night to get it done - undermining my ONE Thing from last week, which was to go to bed early.

So I feel great that I achieved my ONE Thing! And I have a clearer awareness about patterns that I have around time management. I know I will deliver on my promises, but when I don't plan my time well, I often do it at my own personal expense. I think I can approach achieving my goals in a better way, so that I can achieve what I want, without compromising myself. I can do it by setting more realistic goals based on other factors in my life. And I can set a schedule and stick to it.

In terms of the Pantry Project, I also have an awareness that shopping at Costco can lead to an overabundance of food in my pantry. I will be saving a lot of money on groceries this month because I think I can easily live off my supplies for that long.
